Argon, CO2, and N2 gasses were each evaluated in a broiler chicken gas killing system. Birds were killed by individual exposure to one of the three gasses for 2 min in a flow-through system. The gasses were evaluated by determining the time, in seconds, for the following responses: first reaction to the gas, loss of posture, eye closure, initiation of death struggle, and cessation of respiration. Percentage blood loss over a 3-min bleed time was determined by weight loss. Breast muscle pH… CONTINUE READING
